software development, service and quality arenas. Mr. Stewart began his

career in the CAD and imaging field, working with such companies as Image

Systems Technology and Softdesk. He is a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic

“Companies are looking for virtual alternatives to classroom training, new

ways to train their employees more effectively, and profitably, at their

immediate point of need,” said Adam Stewart. ” Having been a part of the

pioneering LearnLinc team for over 5 years, I am honored to be asked to

serve in this important role of creating the finest live e-Learning solution

that truly impacts our customers performance and profitability.”

“Since the launching of the first version of LearnLinc, Mr. Stewart has been

a strong force behind the success of the LearnLinc product and certainly

possesses the breadth of skills to take our live e-Learning solutions to the

next level,” said Chip Schuneman, Mentergy’s Chief Operations Officer. “His

extensive experience in customer support serves him well, because he sees

things clearly from the clients’ point of view. We’re pleased to have him

join our executive team.”

Behavior and sixteen years of experience in planning, organizing, developing

and implementing programs in training and human resource management. Prior
